Rev. Elshout's gospel ministry would not only impact the Netherlands and North America, but he would also be a devoted supporter of the mission work and youth ministry of the (Netherlands) Reformed Congregations.
However, to prepare him to minister to so many, the man Arie Elshout was led through difficult trials. This molded him to be God's servant in speaking a word in season to needy souls.
The lives of Arie Elshout and his wife Elfriede were marked by many touching events, and even times of deep despair. Yet, in these circumstances, the Lord graciously delivered them--again and again.
